“We Have A Pope”

This looks like something people will either love or hate — but, I admit: the trailer made me smile.

From a description of the film:

In his latest comedy, We Have a Pope (aka Habemus Papam), Palme d’Or-winner Nanni Moretti (Aprile, The Son’s Room, The Caiman) joins forces with the great French actor Michel Piccoli to tell the story of Melville, a cardinal who suddenly finds himself elected as the next Pope. Never before in the spotlight and completely caught off guard, he panics as he’s presented to the faithful in St. Peter’s Square. To prevent a worldwide crisis, the Vatican calls in an unlikely psychiatrist who is neither religious or all that committed, played by Moretti, to find out what is wrong with the new Pope and come to a solution. It first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. Sundance Select will open in limited theaters April 6th, plus VOD on April 11th.

It remains to be seen how the papacy and the Church come off in all this.  Check out the official trailer, below:
